Funny, I was going to vote for installing the desktop first and then
adding needed server packages, but it really depends upon your needs
I've installed ubuntu as a server twice, and both times I regretted it
because I later realized that I wanted to be able to use the machine as
an extra desktop for visiting folks or whatever.
I guess I'm guessing that installing a few server packages is easier
than installing (fully and correctly) a desktop environment.
